 Recently Leo Panitch, characterized SYRIZA as “the most promising anti-neoliberal party on the European political stage”.

SYRIZA, for them, means shifting the process of radicalization from the periphery to the center, from South America to Europe, hoping to spread even further the development of pro...

A century and a half later, it is Marxism itself that continues to haunt the Left, while capitalism remains. What does it mean that Marx and Marxism still appeal, while political movements for socialism are weak or non- existent? What were Marxism's original points of dep...

Doch nicht erst seit dem 11. September und Obama ist es um die Situation der Linken schlecht bestellt. Neben geringer Beteiligung und mangelndem Einfluss sind es dabei auch innerlinke Fehler, die das Projekt der Emanzipation behindern: Aktionismus, staatsappellative Kampagnen, kruder Antiimperialismus und...

While the Iraq war has been a rallying point for anti-hegemonic and anti-“imperialist” sentiments around the world, it did not provide for either theoretical or practical convergence for reinvigorating the Left, but rather revealed its fragmented and confus...
